• "Where there's a will there's a weapon" Nicolas Cage in THE LORD OF WAR
  • Don't worry about tomorrow today has enough troubles of it's own. Matthew 6: 25-34
  • "Philosophers are like film critics: they're really talking to each other, and neither is doing real work." - Me.
  • "Everything in moderation...including moderation" -- Old School "For every problem there is a solution which is simple, clean and wrong." - H.L. Mencken
  • My own: "That without matter cannot exist without that with matter to support it" A word cannot exist without the sound waves carrying it nor the thing it's recorded on. Love cannot exist without sentian beings. Humour cannot exist without jokes. Electricity cannot exist without electrons and a conduit. Software cannot exist without hardware to carry it out. Actions cannot exist without bones and active muscles. Thoughts cannot exist without ions and active brain cells. So when you are dead, your muscles no longer work and your brain cells are no longer active. Your soul is, according to Aristotle and Plato, your essence, who you are by what you do. If you can no longer do anything nor think then how can your soul exist any more? Therefore, your soul is not immortal and dies when you do!
    • Linda Joy
      words can exist on paper without sound waves. Humor exists without jokes- just watch some funny videos. Actions- the creation of the universe took place without any muscles or bones,so does the falling of a leaf. And after death we get a resurrected body.
  • I have a bunch, but i'll only mention a few! "Knowing is not enough, we must apply, willing is not enough, we must do!"-Bruce Lee. "Have mercy, but fear noone!"-Me. Not sure if this is philosophical but... "I am the hope of the universe... I am the answer to all living things that cry out for peace... I am protector of the innocent... I am the light in the darkness... I am truth... Ally of good, nightmare to you!!!!"-Goku from DragonBall Z.
  • No one person can ever change the truth, but the truth, once learned, can and will change the person. Buddha.
  • Being the twisted individual that I am, Demotivators do it for me: If you earnestly believe that you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there's no end to what you can't do. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. It ROCKS absolutely, too. When the winds of change blow hard enough, the most trivial of things can become deadly projectiles. When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other. Quitters never win, winners never quit, but those who never win AND never quit are idiots. If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments. There is an island of opportunity in the middle of every difficulty. Miss that, though, and you're pretty much doomed.
  • If stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out? – Will Rogers I have seen the future, and it is much like the present, only longer. – Dan Quisenberry Progress might have been all right once, but it has gone on too long. - Ogden Nash If it's worth eating, it's worth eating fast. - Me

  • That a comic book is like a woman's breast. Sure they look good on a screen, but I'd rather have one in my hand. - S. Lee
  • From Edmund Burke: "The effect of liberty to individuals is that they may do as they please. We ought see what it will please them to do before we risk congratulations." Second place: From G.K. Chesterton - "It is absurd for the Evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing, and then pretend that it is more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything."

  • "There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures." -William Shakespeare, as quoted by Ray Kroc who built a financial empire from but an idea, and relentless effort.
